Product Spotlight: The John Deere 1890 Air Seeder
John Deere is constantly offering new models of existing equipment as a way to provide their customers with the latest technological advances and innovative ways to increase efficiency. The 1890 No-Till Air Drill from the agricultural company will lead to a rise in uptime and productivity for farmers across the U.S.
The company released two new larger sizes of the 1890 no-till machines in 2011, as the models came with a wider, more advanced air drill for no-till production sizes, according to No-Till Farmer.
“The addition of the 50- and 60-foot 1890 no-till air drills complements the lineup of seeding products from John Deere and are ideal for use in not only no-till, but reduced-till and even conventional small grain, cereal and soybean operations,” says Aubrey Grove, seeding product marketing manager for John Deere. “The larger seeding widths allow producers to cover more acres in less time, which can be critical in areas where there is a short window of opportunity for seeding.”
The new models of the 1890 feature a five-section, drawn flexible frame with an over-centre fold that allows for easy storage and transport. The machines also come with dual-row spacing that comes in two packages, either 7.5 inches or 10 inches, depending on the preference of the operator and the specific crop.
